Laboratory Registration

Every laboratory at WCU must be registered with the Safety and Risk Management Office.  This process ensures that the Safety Office has a current list of occupied labs and responsible parties, a survey of the type of work being conducted in the labs, and an accurate list of lab emergency contacts.

The Principal Investigator (PI) or Lab Supervisor is required to submit the Lab Registration Form to initially register the space and at any time in the future if any of the following apply:

  • You are relocating to a new lab space, or become responsible for an additional lab space
  • You are using a new hazardous material or equipment that is not identified on your current lab registration.

The Safety Office will use the information provided on the form to develop door signs for the lab.  This provides a necessary reference in the event of an emergency.

You are required to submit a copy of your current chemical inventory with the lab registration form.  Please send the URL if your inventory is online or use the Chemical Inventory Template to submit a spreadsheet inventory.
